sunset or a view of active volcano in Antigua.

                                                                  bob s.

The house is only about a 5 minute boat ride (or a 20 minute walk to the village of San Marcos. The owners are great to deal with, they will arrange everything for you incfor luding shuttle transportation back and forth to the airport in Guatemala City. While you are there contact Luis at Lake Atitlan Day Tours for horseback tidings, hiking, tours of the villages etc. He is great. Thank you again Dita and Michael!

                                                                  joel p.NC, USA

                                                                  Four of us had a wonderful time at Dita and Miguels beautiful home. I can't even describe how beautiful it was seeing the launches pass seemingly a few feet away on the lake. It was so easy getting on and off the launches from their private dock to any of the villages around the lake. Dita was incredibly helpful with places to go and things to do. It was a wonderful week!!!

                                                                  Beautiful home on enchanted waters!

                                                                  William G.-

                                                                  My wife and I traveled with friends to this lovely home on the enchanted volcanic lake known as Lago de Atitlan. The owner, Dita, worked out our shuttle and boat arrangements, made us two fabulous meals and offered to help us with any detail of our stay, no matter how big or small. It is difficult to describe the feeling of peace and tranquility that overtakes you as you gaze at the stars from the rooftop walkway off the master bedroom or arise to the sun coming up over ancient volcanoes. Imagine having dinner as the waters lap below you or breakfast as the lake shimmers with a thousand sparkling waves. As the boat pulled away from the dock outside this wonderful home, we knew that we would come back to this special place in the Guatemalan highlands.

                                                                  Rest for the mind, body and soul!

                                                                  Ellen P.

                                                                  Just returned with my family from a wonderful and restful vacation! The house was truly outstanding with dazzling views and more than enough room for our family of four. Sipping coffee in the morning looking out over a magical setting with beautiful blue skies, exploring unique little villages around the lake and relaxing at night star gazing, watching movies and reading was just what we needed for a restful vacation. Dita and Michael were incredible hosts and guides. They answered all of our questions, helped plan our day trips and gave us great tips. The amenities are fantastic -we asked Dita to stock the kitchen with some food before we came and found that very helpful. She cooked a delicious dinner for us upon our arrival for which we were truly appreciative after a long day of travel. We explored local villages, hiked, swam and learned about the beautiful Mayan culture, shopped the markets and tasted a multitude of different cuisines. Getting around by lancha was easy and local tuk-tuks were another fun and easy mode of transportation. We hope to return soon - it was an extraordinary experience in an exquisite environment. Enjoy!

                                                                  Glen P.

The grounds are beautifully kept, with plenty of space and privacy. The house, itself, is beautiful, spacious, full of works of art. We were greatly pleased with the breakfasts and dinners cooked by Dita. Lake Atitlan, itself, is a wonderful place. Each day of our stay, we took the boat to different villages to explore the local Mayan culture. The hike up the San Pedro volcano was an exhilarating experience. Dita was a generous host, who gave us many helpful tips, and ensured our plans were full of exciting things to do around the lake. We look forward to returning.

The location is magic, the house offers great comfort and Dita and Michael are great hosts. The swimm in the lake is incredible as is the view from the panoramatic window. We loved it!
